      Dear Friends,
      Please do not take this for a junk letter. Bill Gates is
      sharing
      his
      fortune.  If you ignore this you will repent later.
      Microsoft
      and
      AOL
      are
      now the largest Internet companies and in an effort to 
      make
      sure
      that
      Internet Explorer remains the most widely used program,
      Microsoft
      and
      AOL
      are running an e-mail beta test.

      When you forward this e-mail to friends, Microsoft can and
      will
      track
      it
      (if
      you are a Microsoft Windows user) for a two week time
      period.
      For
      every
      person that you forward this e-mail to, Microsoft will pay
      you
      $245.00,
      for
      every person that you sent it to that forwards it on,
      Microsoft
      will
      pay
      you
      $243.00 and for every third person that receives it, you
      will
      be

              What JG says carries some wieght, a lot of times those scams are just a
              means of spreading virii. The virus often times comes disguised as a file
              attached to the message, if you open the attachment it will send itself to
              everyone in your address book and it will look like you sent it. Very
              scary, that's why I don't ever open any attachments I'm not expecting, or
              that haven't been scanned by good ol Norton. Surely be ware of the scam, if
              it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

              Cheers,
              Mike
